Subway Fresh Fit 500 LogoWeek 2 of NASCAR picks are back here at Bankroll Sports, and this week, we’re taking a look at the Subway Fresh Fit 500 odds and making our Phoenix picks for the upcoming NASCAR race.

The man that won the Daytona 500 last week is the man that is the favorite here across the country in Phoenix. Jimmy Johnson (Current Subway Fresh Fit 500 Odds: 11 to 2 at JustBet Sportsbook) is the runaway favorite at +550 to win the Subway Fresh Fit 500, and for good reason. He was a man on a mission at the Daytona 500 last week, and when that last restart occurred, there was no way that he was going to get run down. The No. 48 has been out of the championship loop for a couple of years, and at least if last week is any indication, that’s going to stop this year. Johnson has had a great history here at Phoenix as well, posting four wins in 19 races. That by itself is good enough to think that the Lowe’s Chevy can get to Victory Lane, but when parlayed with last week’s results in the Sunshine State, we know we’re getting a great price on one of NASCAR’s best drivers.

Bovada NASCARThe defending champ here at the Subway Fresh Fit 500 though, is Denny Hamlin (Subway Fresh Fit 500 Lines: 17 to 2 at JustBet Sportsbook). It was the first time Hamlin won the first race of the year in the desert in his career, but it wasn’t nearly the only time that he had a great run here at Phoenix International Raceway. Hamlin has seven Top 5 finishes and an average finish of 10.3 in 15 career races at this track. Hamlin had a decent run at Daytona, and many think that he is the driver to watch in this race and for the rest of the campaign.

Jeff Gordon (Odds to Win the Subway Fresh Fit 500: 13 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook) is the only man that has won two Subway Fresh Fit 500s all-time, as he picked up the wins on this track both in 2007 and 2011. Gordon raced a lot better last week than a 20th place finish at the Daytona 500 suggests. It really was a good week for the Rainbow Warriors until the last few laps of the Daytona 500, and we have to think that that is going to end up carrying over into the desert. Gordon is an interesting man to try to bet at a great price like this one. There has to be at least a one in 10 chance that he gets to Victory Lane for the third time in the Spring race in Phoenix.

2005 Subway Fresh Fit 500 Winner – Kurt Busch

And then of course, there is the hot, fresh thing on the NASCAR circuit, Danica Patrick (Current Subway Fresh Fit 500 Odds: 75 to 1 at JustBet Sportsbook). Danica Mania has taken NASCAR by storm, and she proved last week that she really can race. Patrick takes a lot of flak for the fact that she only won one race at the INDY Car level, but we do have to remember that she had a slew of Top 5s and Top 10s before taking the jump to NASCAR. Is Patrick going to win in her first race at Phoenix? Of course she probably won’t. However, we have to remember that last week, it wasn’t just Patrick, but men like Aric Almirola that were contending at the death in Daytona. Starting from the pole at the Great American Race was one thing. Finishing in the Top 10 and being in the Top 5 until Lap 199 at Daytona is something totally different.
